Summary: I bought two of these cameras form Amazon for Xmas presents last year for approximately 2/3 of the price it's currently being advertised for. I bought one black and one silver and I must say for me the black was very rough to handle, like holding a sandpaper case!
Summary: Having had this camera for nearly a year, I feel in a position to explain some of the drawbacks I've encountered. Firstly, the flash: it's so near the edge of this tiny camera that it's very easy for a stray finger to partially obscure it.
Summary: This camera was bought as a present for my wife, to replace a Sony DSCW290 which stopped working. She also owns a Canon EOS 20D which we both love. We were not impressed by how quickly the Sony broke, so decided to go with a Canon this time. The IXUS 220HS feels really good.
Great, wanted it to last more than a year though!!!!

Summary: Its a year and two months and a severe lens fault occurring, which at least will mean a two year warranty at £30 would probably be cheaper than me now having to replace it! With another more robust model!!!
Summary: First of all can we say, that we are big fans of the Canon Ixus range, and have owned several over the last 10 years - we started out way back with the Ixus film cameras.

Summary: I bought this to replace my Panasonic TZ10, which was a great camera but was a little too large to fit in a pocket and had poor low light performance. This camera takes pretty good images in lower light conditions, but it appears that some sacrifices have been made as in good light images can look a...
Summary: It looks and feels good to handle, easy to operate. It is fast and responsive. However the picture quality is pretty average, especially in the auto mode the pictures appear very bright and artificial. My old Sony DSC V1 (from 2004!) which is 5 MP camera takes better pictures.
Excerpt: On a recent visit to the United States "The Grump" thought is was about time to update his photography equipment. Seeing as my previous visits abroad consisted of bringing a near seperate suitcase I was looking for something smaller, enter the Canon IXUS 220 HS.
Pros: Ease of use and battery life, with some smart recording options !
Summary: ******************** Original Review: My perspective: just upgraded from IXUS 60 to IXUS 220. I chose an IXUS again because I absolutely loved the build quality, functionality and small dimensions of the IXUS 60.
